ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office won’t charge a deputy for shooting a man in the South Valley.
Last year, deputies followed Alejandro Valdez in a stolen car near Rio Bravo and Isleta.
He opened fire on deputies, including Michelle Carlino-Webster. She shot back, hitting him in the shoulder. No deputies were hurt.
Wednesday the DA’s Office says Deputy Carlino-Webster used force to defend herself.
Valdez is currently serving a 26 year prison sentence.
